Costco now selling a Cubbie Cadet 24 inch

They are selling this 24 inch thingie for $699, which is about $100 less than what Cub Cadet sells for on their website. Not a fan of all the plastic but looks like a decent machine, at least it doesn't have the piddly paddles!

CubCadet - 2X? 24"

It's a nice smaller machine with some good features fo the money. However I found the one offered at Tractor Supply to have an easier chute but it is $100. More. I would check both if there is a Tractor Supply in your area.

I see the head light. What other features on there do you like? What size engine?

It features a 208cc Cub Cadet engine manufactured by Zongshen. Additionally it also has trigger activated power steering, 4 way chute control and X-Trac tires. It is a feature rich machine for this price point.

I don't know about that machine. Looks like it takes way too many double A batteries!

That's kindling for the fire that the owner will light under it when the thing croaks right after the 10 day warranty expires.

Putting the name Cub Cadet on that thing doesn't change the fact that it's still just an MTD.Yes,there are many people who own MTD products and love them to death.I'm not one of them.Two members of my family bought MTD blowers and had nothing but problems with them-I know,I was the one who always had to work on them.

I took a pretty nice looking MTD blower once as a partial trade.My experience with that one was no better-I got rid of it quickly.

Just my opinion folks,but I wouldn't take the gift of a Cub Cadet/MTD blower.

I agree!! Me personally I prefer Ariens,but hey what ever works for you,I'm sure there's a lot of cub cadet owners out there who are happy with their machines...that's why I don't bash anyone's brand..I see the top 3 brands have threads on here discussing issues with them.what I'm saying is not everyone can afford a $5000 Honda,even they can have some sort issues.
